Larco Museum - National Museum of Archeology, Anthropology, and History

Surrounded by gardens; the Larco Museum is housed in an impressive vice royal mansion from the 18th century which rests on the base of a 7th century pre-Columbian pyramid. Many of its pieces, which span 3,000 years of Peruvian pre-Columbian cultures like the Moche, Chavín, Nazca, Huari, Chimú, and Inca, have become icons of Pre-Columbian art and are lent to renowned museums and cultural centers worldwide.

Admire the finest jewelry of ancient Peru’s notable rulers in the Gold and Silver Collection and let yourself be surprised by the famous Gallery of Erotic Pottery. As a special highlight, the Larco Museum allows visitors to enter the storage area, with 45,000 classified archeological objects- one of the few museums in the world to permit this!

Our next stop is the National Museum of Archeology, Anthropology, and History. The only museum whose exhibits span complete history from Peru´s first inhabitants and cultures through the Conquest, Colony and Republic, its vast and varied collections are presented in an accessible and interactive way.

Here, lost worlds will open up before you as the guide introduces the incomparable textile masterpieces of Paracas, the carved stone monoliths known as the Raimondi Stela and Tello Obelisk. Through human remains from the Stone Age (10,000BC) through Inca Period- thousands and thousands of pieces including funeral bundles in various stages of unwrapping and skeleton we’ll relive the shared past of human civilization, progressing through the Ancient Native Technologies gallery.

We’ll also visit the adjacent colonial villa which the museum maintains; it was once the residence of the vice-king and the two most prominent national heroes from the Wars of Independence, the Liberator Simón Bolivar and Generalissimo Don Jose on San Martín.
